Windows 7: Put Desktop Back In Navigation Pane

Put Desktop Back In Navigation Pane

I accidently removed Desktop from the top position in the navigation pane and would like to put it back. I would like to place Desktop above Computer and have Desktop open expanded by default.

Thanks

Thanks, Mike. It's a nice little tool that I used to add the recycle bin and control panel, but it was unable to place the Desktop where I wanted it .

Welcome to the Seven Forums
Try dragging and dropping the desk top icon into the navigation pane then you should be allowed to drag it to the top.
Here's a tutorial about automatic expanding of folders
be sure to look at the bottom of the tutorial there are links to others.
Navigation Pane - Automatically expand to current folder
also try right clicking on favorites or library and click restore links.
